A hard yet flexible, durable and water resistant oil based paint designed for interior application to suitably prepared surfaces. Enhanced application properties and extended workability help in repairing surface defects for longer and achieve a superior, low sheen finish.
Decorators have always liked oil paints (see below). ‘Nothing compares to a real oil paint‘. Oil paints certainly do give a great finish. The new wave of Little Greene oil paints have replaced nasty solvents with vegetable oils.
History Oil Painters
In the old days a painter had to make his paint as well as apply it. He would always keep with him a good supply of pigments, oils, thinners and driers. He was a craftsman and took a pride in his ability to create the right mix of oil paint for the job. This part of the job was as important as applying the paint.
In 1894, a national association of painters formed. In 1918 it became known as the National Federation of Master Painters and Decorators of England and Wales. It later changed its name to the British Decorators Association. Finally in 2002 it merged with the Painting & Decorating Federation. Today it is simply known as The Painting & Decorating Association.
Your decorator today is primarily responsible for preparing the surface, applying the paint and cleaning up. His past skills of mixing up his special recipes have long gone. Maybe this is why the trade is so keen to keep their beloved Oil Based Paints. Maybe we can understand this a little!
